here on the fiscal cliff and we're creeping up here on new year's eve. and then yesterday, as you just mentioned, treasury secretary tim geithner really upped the ante in dramatic stakes in the fiscal cliff end game by saying that the united states is going to hit its borrowing limit on monday. now he said the treasury can put in place some extraordinary measures and it has some wiggle room there but he said that the doubt and uncertainty over the fiscal cliff really clouds the prospect of exactly when the united states is going to hit its debt ceiling, statutory borrowing limit. so, that all adds a whole element of drama to all this. and it's really not clear, guys, at this point, how this thing is going to get resolved. but the house has said that it would like the senate now to go first after the house had been taking the lead in negotiations earlier on. and they say they stand ready to vote, at least, on whatever it is that the democratic controlled senate will pass. it's not clear, however, that anything that could pass the senate could also pass the house, which is controlled by

america falling over the fiscal cliff? house republicans haven't yet called their members back to washington. our chief political correspondent, john harwood, is with us. john, this feels very much like it might be the calm before the storm in more way than one. >> it could be if we go over the cliff and the storm would be generated by the markets and the loss of confidence in american governance and the american economy, but that's not necessarily going to be the case. we still have a few days left. a white house official told me that there have been no progress over the last couple of days, but an aide to senator harry reid told me there's still a 50/50 chance we get a mini deal that would put off the effects of the cliff at least temporarily and a 50/50 chance of that happening before january 1st. so even though there's a small number of days, sometimes the urgency of a deadline forces lawmakers to overcome differences they can't overcome otherwise. >> remind us, john, a mini deal is composed in the senate but still has to pass through house republicans and boehner or not? >

consumer doesn't understand the fiscal cliff but i think they watch the news and understand something is wrong and people are very worried about it. i think that the way things stand now, if we do go over the cliff, it is going to be most of an impact for lower end consumer. i think the higher end consumer still has an ability to spend. certainly maybe a bit more cognizant of impaktd opinion but their ability to spend on discretionary categories, it is not hammered to the extent it'll cause major pull back in spending and categories of things we cover. maybe they won't buy boats and homes, but i think sweaters and watches will sell good in that category. >> that is certainly a big, big worry but again a worry for lower end consumer. more so than the higher end consumer. if you look at employment trends, high end versus low end, it is a very different story and i think that the lower end consumer is the consumer i'm most worried about if we good over the fiscal cliff. >> what do you think about that, is that the category you would watch as well going over the fiscal cliff? >> the categ

the consumer confidence stuff. according to a recent study, the fiscal cliff gridlock in washington has taken a tol. a new survey by the conference board shows levels in the first half of december falling to the lowest level since august. an unexpectedly sharp decline. the survey indicates that consumer anxiety stems from worries about the fiscal future and not from the current state of the economic. >> that's completely true. if you look at a lot of economic indicators they're good. the housing market is stabilizes and unemployment is ticks down. companies that have a lot of cash on balance sheets, but this december drop in can confidence, it's hard to think about what this would be about, if not the cliff. >> it's what you said. if you noted you may face thousands of dollars in increases if you're a married couple in taxes, if you're existing on unemployment insurance that may not be there in january, why would you go on a shoppi ping spree or shopping all if you can avoid it? people keep saying, well, it won't be that bad for long. that's according to how long you have money. if you're mid

is now for that last ditch effort to avert the fiscal cliff. if they're sticking to the schedule, the president is sitting down right now at the white house. inside that building you see right there. he's sitting down with the top four leaders of congress. they're trying to find a way to prevent the january tax increase that's about to wallop taxpayers. a short time ago, we got a glimpse of how speaker john boehner. he was on his way to the white house. and just moments ago, we saw the top senate democrat, harry reid, pull up to the west entrance, and into the white house through a side door. jessica yellin standing by for us at the white house on the lawn, set the scene for us if you will. it is very dramatic. >> reporter: it is game time here at the white house. if they're going to reach a deal, this is the meeting where they'll do it. i understand both leader reid and leader mcconnell from the senate have arrived. we have not seen speaker boehner or nancy pelosi, leader pelosi walk into the white house yet. before i plugged in at least she hadn't, they hadn't arrived. but it i
? >> it's irony and paradox upon irony. remember the reason the fiscal cliff is supposed to be so dangerous and the reason why so many people in washington are worried about the fiscal cliff is it's too much deficit reduction too fast. so all of this takes place against a debate about how to reduce the budget deficit. that's why you get into this theater of the absurd. >> well, and look at the tape you showed at the opening of the program with keith boykin over and over again showing the dysfunction of congress. they made this so onerous with the belief it would make them do something less onerous and now they're right up against it. >> they really know how to make these crises happen. political correspondent and writer, john howard, thank you very much for joining me and former labor secretary robert reich, thank you for joining me tonight. >>> coming up, the nra has done much more damage than you think. and they've made gun ownership much harder to trace. >>> and the romneys keep trying new explanations for why mitt lost. but they aren't getting any closer to the truth. and as s
